Loved this tour! We scheduled relatively last minute and we were so pleased with the guides knowledge and stories as a local firenzian as well as the amount of food and drinks and locations we were able to try. Especially considering this price we couldn’t recommend more! We loved visiting the market and trying the truffle especially, and loved getting insight into the coffee culture versus American as well.

Christina was amazing!

We were delightfully surprised to see that we got extremely personalized attention during this tour. We felt like we were being toured through Florence by a friend. Our tour guide Christina, was unbelievably well-informed. She was truly a scholar of the city itself. Her knowledge of the sights and attractions made the tour that much more special. We were introduced to foods and restaurants that we wanted to go back to during the remainder of our stay in Florence, which speaks volumes. The tour also was great at familiarizing us with the layout of Florence, which while much smaller than Rome can be equally confusing to navigate on your own! Don't miss this tour.

This was a highlight of our visit to Florence. Guido was an amazing guide who brought both the city of Florence and the amazing food and wine of the city Alive. He is so passionate about the history and culture and this made the tour even more special. We visited and sampled the most amazing food and wine during the tour and it just kept on coming. So many off the beaten track places and we were fortunate to meet another wonderful couple from Brooklyn too who were also great foodies. We were In Total foodie heaven!

Antonio was the best a single lady travel alone could hope for! It ended up being just the 2 of us so not only did he take me to so many interesting places, he was able to share his passion for the city and it’s history! It was obvious that he was well educated and traveled which created such sophisticated and fun conversation along our route. I highly recommend requesting his superior service for anyone traveling to Florence! The wine, Olive oil, pastry, pasta, gelato were all so delicious and his conversation so relevant I was beyond delighted! Bravo!
